Some fella was wearing it there commenting on the Saville/BBC scandal.
It seems like the time is right to begin the annual poppy-wearing thread - it's always good craic in fairness.
Some of the usual arguments:
1. One does not need to wear the red poppy to remember or honour their veteran or deceased ancestors - at least not exclusively. White poppies exist for those who might believe that the First World War was monumentally disastrous for the people of Europe and beyond.
2. The money for red poppies funds the British Legion. Thus, while any donations support veterans of the Second World War, such money can also go to the relief of ex-soldiers involved in some of the less glorious episodes involving the British army.
What have I missed?
